Silent Courage: My 1st Book Signing & 1st Reviews

This Saturday–May 3, 2014–at 2 p.m., I will be signing Silent Courage books at Halcyon Spa in Augusta, MO, as part of the Plein Air Art Festival. Come stop by! I promise you won’t be disappointed–there will be chair massages in the spa, the Yo! Salsa food truck parked out front from 4-8 p.m., and a multitude of local wineries (and a brewery) down the street. And, you can see 100+ artists live painting in downtown Augusta during the Plein Air Art Fest.

Halcyon Spa is approximately 15 miles from Hwy 40/61 off Hwy 94. Turn right off Hwy 94 (at the Augusta bell tower sign) onto Jackson, go down to 211 Jackson St, Augusta, MO 63332.

In other book news, Silent Courage has been officially “live” for one week. In that short amount of time, I am floored to have received two book reviews from two writers whom I really respect–Beth Havey and Chris Stuckenschneider.

Boomer Highway

Beth Havey, the creator and founder of Boomer Highway, added my book to her “Armor for the Journey: Books for Boomers Part 2″ series. Beth is not only a trusted resource on wellness and aging, but she provides us boomers with the humor, happiness, and health empowerment we need to travel the “highway” together.


Washington Missourian (online)

Our local newspaper’s book editor and resident book lover, Chris Stuckenschneider, read my book in one sitting and reviewed it on the Washington Missourian site. Chris is extremely well read, very witty, and a delight to read–whether she’s reviewing a book or chronicling her keen observations on life.  Check out her review here.


A huge thank you to both Beth and Chris for reading and reviewing Silent Courage. I am truly honored. If you have read it, please let me know what you think. I’d love to connect and hear your thoughts. There’s no greater compliment for an author than receiving an Amazon review, so if you like Silent Courage, you can drop your thoughts off there.

Silent Courage is available on Amazon in paperback and Kindle forms.

I hope you’re having a great week, and look forward to seeing some of you this weekend at the book signing at Halcyon Spa.


About Mary Byrne Eigel

Before writing children’s books, Mary spent many years teaching in classrooms and creating art in her studio. She was born with bi-lateral hip dysplasia, a painful condition that causes normal activities, like walking, to be challenging. As a child, when Mary had to trek long distances, she often wished she had a wheelchair. For her, a wheelchair offered pain-free opportunities, not limitations. Mary grew up in Chicago, which is the lakefront inspiration for the town of Sail. She lives in Missouri with her husband and two dogs, Beaux and Trey.
